Abstract (en)

Provided is a front fork provided with a plurality of adjusters, while including a spring adjuster. In order to achieve the above object, in a front fork F according to the means for solving the problem of the present invention, a spring adjuster A is rotatably mounted on a position eccentric to a center O of a cap 4 as viewed in an axial direction and includes a screw portion 35 disposed in an outer periphery protruded into a fork main body 1, and a plate P in which the screw portion 35 of the spring adjuster A is screwed to change support positions of a suspension spring S is brought into contact with a case (tubular member) 14a at two points on both sides in a circumferential direction of the normal of the case 14a that passes a mounting center of the spring adjuster A. Accordingly, while being prevented from rotating, the plate P can be downsized and can be disposed so as not to interfere with first and second adjusters 5, 6.
